There he happens upon an old friend from high school, Livi, who he learns has forgone a promising acting career to work in a retirement home. Meanwhile Livi's sister-in-law Reina enrolls in a class about space at the local community college and, much to her husband Barry's dismay, becomes fixated on the unlikely dream of becoming an astronaut. Pax supports Reina's aspirations and encourages Livi to revive hers - all while pursuing his own far-fetched dream of opening a restaurant for celebrities in LA.
